Post 16 Application

Sixth Form Prospectus Sixth Form Application

The Joseph Whitaker School has a high performing Sixth Form with outstanding academic success.  Each year a significant number of our students successfully go on to Russell Group universities.  We also welcome applications from students currently attending other schools.  Many such students join us each year and have a very positive experience both academically and socially.


The evening will take the form of a presentation by Mr Jacques (Head of Sixth Form) and myself, with an opportunity to visit each department where you will be able to learn about the courses we have on offer.  The presentation specifically will share the following information with you:


  • Examination results for The Joseph Whitaker School Sixth Form from 2019-2022.  This will enable visitors to see, in real terms, the high academic success experienced by our students over the last three years.
  • Post 18 destinations – 36% of our students went to Russell Group universities in 2021 and 2022.
  • All applications are online using the link above.
  • Students are also encouraged to speak to their subject teachers, in order to gain more information about each individual subject, alongside reading the Post 16 Prospectus (available above).
  • The entry criteria for Post 16 study.
  • The wider benefits of sixth form life
  • Enrichment opportunities
  • UCAS Support
  • Careers Advice
  • Work Experience
  • Leadership
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • EPQ
  • The Sixth Form Centre in which both the café and the private study areas unique to our sixth form students are based


Please do not hesitate to contact the school if any further support is required.


The closing date for applications is 1st December 2022.
